When they released Crooks & Lovers back in 2010 on Scuba's Hotflush label, Mount Kimbie changed the face of the soon to be going overground dubstep scene of which many critics aligned them as major players of. Looking back now it's clear how much of a game changer Crooks & Lovers truly was, mixing the after-hours angles of Burial with a thirst for the sort of pop savvy sound that would come to characterized them and fellow future Warp signings Darkstar, Mount Kimbie created an album that became the go-to disc for both zonked out/just got home clubbers while also becoming a haven for indie kids looking to dip their toes into the burgeoning electronic underground.

Loaded to the brim with more classics than we can care to mention, the instant standouts are the crackly RNB of 'Carbonated' the cheeky dubstep wobble of 'Blind Night Errand' and of course the bleary-eyed siren cry of 'Ruby' through each track is a crown jewel in its own right. Reflecting now after eight years and two albums it's easy to trace the dubstep/house/electronic sensibility and influence of Mount Kimbie's Crooks & Lovers within the work of fellow scene outsiders from both the albums time, we're talking James Blake and Jamie xx while its presence can arguably be felt right up within the present day material of Yves Tumor.

A properly classic album of its time and yours.
